Tingling feet after orgasm?

Just a quick question for curiosity's sake. Every time I masturbate to orgasm, afterward whenever I contract my pelvic floor muscles, a.k.a. kegels, the bottom of my feet tingle. Only when I tighten those muscles does it happen. With every single contraction, the tingly stuff happens, and then when I release the muscle again, it stops abruptly. And it's ONLY in my feet. It's not when the actual orgasm happens, but after. I'm not concerned about it, I think it's neat. I was just wondering if this happens to anyone else, and if anyone knows what this is and why it happens? Thanks! ;D

I agree, my legs get really weak too!

When I have a really good orgasm my arms, from armpit to fingertip, go numb. It's probably just some sort of nerve connection, or your body forgetting about other parts while concentrating on the orgasm. :)

I'm thinking this. Maybe like referred pain...but different.

My hands and feet go completely numb and sometimes my lips and forehead.
I always think it's silly.

Yeah, I thought it might be similar to referred pain. I remember going in for a procedure on my liver, and the doctor poked my bowel on accident (no biggy) and it made my right shoulder throb for a while. Maybe it's something having to do with nerve wiring. :P

I don't think it's happened to me (at least not in a pronounced enough way that I've noticed it), but I've definitely read plenty of comments from VP members stating that it's happened to them.

Yup, the bottoms of my feet. Weird connection thing I've always thought. =)

My feet don't tingle, but I get muscle twitches in them after orgasm sometimes. I don't know why it happens, but it amuses me to no end :P

that happens to my hands, they practically go into claw-shape and i have difficulty opening them up. no idea about why it happens...maybe all the blood and excitement has gone to more important parts? :)

If I have an absolutely amazing orgasm, my teeth actually tingle. It's really weird! I have no idea what would cause it, though.

I do get some muscle twitches when I orgasm. And on a similar topic, it's cool how bodies can be wired in weird ways. When I lightly touch the inside of my left elbow, for example, the left side of my tongue tickles uncontrolably. Also, sometimes when I spontaneously have a very erotic thought it makes me sneeze! I've always wanted to know if this happens to other people...

I have the exact same response when I lightly touch the same spot. My tongue starts to itch a little. I don't sneeze when I have an erotic thought, but that's funny! I had surgery on my right shoulder for a blood clot a few years ago, and the surgeon must have either re-wired something, or I just healed oddly, because whenever I touch a certain part of my shoulder, I feel nothing on that spot, but I can feel it on a lower spot as if I were touching there. Bodies are so interesting.

The sneeze thing happens to me too! Good to know I am not the only one, I've always thought it was so weird...

J Klba My lips (not labia) feel tingly and or numb after orgas13th-Apr-2016 12:50 pm (UTC)
I'm just curious if this happens to any other women. After I orgasm, never after I masturbate tho, only after vaginal coitus with a penis my lips and the area right around my mouth feels tingly, and or feels puffy or slightly swollen and numb...kinda like a shot of Novacaine feels after a visit to the dentist only not quite as intense. But definitely noticeably numb...am I alone in this or are there others? (I'm sure I'm not alone in this matter- 8 Billion people - I can't be the only one its improbable) So please comment n fill me in on your personal experience with the asforementioned....

This occurs because the part in you body that controls your feet is adjacent to the part in your brain that makes your orgasms. So the depending on the strength of your climax. You could have the feeling in your feet and lower leg because it travels to the part of the brain that controls the foot.
